Navigating the map

There are several ways to navigate your way through the map.

If you have a certain project in mind:

  • Click on the project icon to find out more about the project or the ‘who’s involved’ icon to see the network people engaging with the project.
  • It is recommended that once you know the category/categories the project(s) you are interested in, turn off the other layers of project mapping by unticking the red box next to the category name.
  • Another way to find the project is to simply scroll through the project lists.

If you have a contact/person in mind who you know is involved:

Current projects

Riverside Outdoor Learning Space 

A cross-disciplinary project between the BA (Hons) Architecture programme and the Education Institute’s BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies programme, in which students are working together with the Riverside Community Primary School Nursery to generate ideas for, design and build a new outdoor learning and plays space on the nursery’s grounds in Barne Barton, Plymouth.

Regeneration of Iao Hon, Macau

A cross-university (and cross-national project) involving the Master of Architecture programme is also underway. This builds on a successful visit to Macau, China this past Autumn, during which M Arch students worked together with City University of Macau PhD students exploring possibilities for the regeneration of a long-overlooked and marginalised neighbourhood in Macau. Invited to work there by a Senator of the Macau government, their work has involved consultation with the Government’s Economic Policy and Regeneration Office and Cultural Institute, developers, and the local community.

Union Street Hub

A cross-sector project between the Master of Architecture programme and various external partners, including KARST, Nudge, Our Plymouth and the Plymouth Octopus Project, to generate and develop ideas for regeneration of the Union Street area in Plymouth. One of the ideas currently being is for a community-based University hub, which will bring in discussions with the University’s Medical School and Nursing and Midwifery School.
